Goodreads – Waking Up

“Our minds are all we have. They are all we have ever had. And they are all we can offer others. This might not be obvious, especially when there are aspects of your life that seem in need of improvement—when your goals are unrealized, or you are struggling to find a career, or you have relationships that need repairing. But it’s the truth. Every experience you have ever had has been shaped by your mind. Every relationship is as good or as bad as it is because of the minds involved. If you are perpetually angry, depressed, confused, and unloving, or your attention is elsewhere, it won’t matter how successful you become or who is in your life—you won’t enjoy any of it.” ~ Sam Harris

“Cei care vor spiritualitate fara religie vor gasi in noua carte a lui Sam Harris un ghid desavarsit pentru meditatie ca practica spirituala rationala informata de neurostiinta si psihologie. Scrisa de neurosavantul si renumitul autor de bestselleruri New York Times, Sam Harris, Trezirea se adreseaza celor care nu urmeaza nici o religie, dar care banuiesc ca Isus, Buddha, Laozi, Rumi si alti sfinti si intelepti din istorie nu au avut cum sa fie cu totii epileptici, schizofrenici sau sarlatani. Pe parcursul cartii, Harris argumenteaza ca in experientele unor astfel de contemplativi pot fi gasite adevaruri importante – si ca astfel intelegerea realitatii presupune mai multe lucruri decat admit in general stiinta si cultura seculara.

Trezirea este in parte jurnalul unei cautari si in parte o explorare a fundamentelor stiintifice ale spiritualitatii. Nici o alta carte nu asociaza mai bine intelepciunea contemplativa cu stiinta moderna si nici un alt autor in afara de Harris – om de stiinta, filosof si renumit sceptic – nu ar fi putut sa o scrie.”
